    New Range

    We were window shopping new stoves yesterday. Another want, maybe. I saw Porcelain oven racks. You can leave them in the oven while using the self clean feature. Anyone have these.

    I don't. But what I do have are porcelain burner racks on my gas stove. I had DH cleaning them the other day and he mentioned the possibility of putting them in the oven on self clean. Haven't researched it but would be very curious.

    We have those in our gas range...they are wonderful. Just leave them in the oven and do the self-clean.

    A while back ago, I heard that the self cleaning features takes a huge amount of electrical power.

    I have used the self cleaning feature once in 5 years. The porcelain racks did come out clean and so did the oven. The smell and the heat were the downside. I opened the windows so I didn't benefit from the heat to keep warm. As far as the glass window in the door, I clean it with oven cleaner in the spray can. I spray it on paper towels and wipe the window clean. My husband taught me that trick because that's how he cleans the glass door of the pellet stove.

    After 38 years of only having gas ranges, circumstances called for a new stove and I decided
    to get the one my dd has loved and it's electric.
    I'm trying really hard to learn what numbers to cook with for different purposes. I sometimes
    scorch things that I thought were on a low enough number.
    My husband says that electric stoves concentrate the most heat right where the coils are
    under the pot and he must be right bc that is where the scorched food adheres.
    Any advice? I do love the stove, but hate this awful learning phase.
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    I clean mine fairly often and we don't notice any spikes in our utility bill. One good hint is to schedule a cleaning immediately after baking/roasting...the oven has a head start on heating up. I agree that gas stove burner racks clean wonderfully, my 2nd oven has liners that I remove and put in self clean oven. I also agree that there is unpleasant smell, but I can endure easier than using my own elbow grease!

    I have a stove with racks that you can leave in with the self cleaning feature and love them. The stove is an electric induction with a glass top. It's so much cleaner than gas, By the way, do not leave pet birds in the same room when running the self cleaning feature, the fumes will kill them. I only run it when I can open up, in the spring or fall.

    Ha, I dislike my last new stove so I don't baby it. I keep my metal racks in place and use the self clean feature at least once a month. I don't have gas and all the electric stores are not to my liking so I'm keeping this one I don't like until we move. No use buying another electric one I won't like. At least it stays very clean. I love the self cleaning feature. I keep the vent system on so no smell or fumes to worry about. And the more frequent you use the self clean feature the less fumes there are. If you wait until the oven is dirty then yeah the fumes will be bad.

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.
